1. The Daily Five - Maths

In maths every Monday we focus on learning and consolidating our number bonds. I would like this to continue every Monday over the school closures.


Today please can your child complete the sixth number bonds sheet in their resource pack. This should now be number bonds to 20 and is called number bonds to 20 (bar models). Could they then follow this by completing the second number bonds challenge 3 which can also be found in the initial pack. If you have already used any of these worksheet resources, they can be found to re print on the year one home learning page under resources you may need everyday.


If you feel like they are able to cope with more of a challenge, please complete the given 'counting in 2s' worksheet found under 'todays resources'. 


2. The Daily Five - Literacy

Then I would like the children to focus on their handwriting in their work books. For handwriting at this stage in their development we focus on letter formation Please see the letter formation guidance on the home learning page under 'resources you may need everyday'. The document is called 'handwriting.pdf'.


Today I would like the children to practice half of the letters in the long ladder family, l, i, t, completing a line of every letter. The k is notoriously tricky, please allow extra practice for this letter. 


3. The Daily Five - Outside Time/Be Active

Use the things you find outside to create a 2d version of your house. Make sure you include windows and a door! 


4. The Daily Five - Project


Houses around the world (Geography)

Houses differ around the world, mainly due to the countries climate and resources. Use the resources included and the internet (with help from an adult) to learn about different houses in the given countries. 

Over the week choose 2 countries/house types out of the following:

Kenya (Inkajijik)

Switzerland (Chalets)

New Guinea (Tree houses)

Greenland/Canada (Igloos)

Australia (Bungalows/Air-conditioning/Solar panels)

  • Locate the country on a map of the world.
  • Research online (with an adult) the types of houses they have in that country.
  • Make something to present on class dojo to Miss Chapman e.g. a labelled poster, power point, video or a written summary telling me about the houses you have researched.
  • Consider: Do all houses have different rooms like ours? Do they have kitchens? How do they cook food in their house? Can they wash in this house? 
  • Consider making reference too how your chosen countries house differs from our houses and why (different weather, different materials).


5. The Daily Five - Phonics

Remembering the 'oy' sound. 


Look at these 'oy' words - choose a word and write a sentence containing this word. Remember your capital letters and full stops. Do this 3 times and be sure to discuss the meaning of words they are unsure of. 











Challenge: write a sentence containing 2 of the words! 

Then play buried treasure with (oy).
